Conjoined twins share their secrets

Carmen and Lupita have been an anomaly since their birth. Being conjoined twins, everyone will always be curious about how they navigate through the world. Now that they are 21 years old, the topic of love and relationships has been brought up by none other than the twins themselves. In a YouTube ask me anything, they answered questions from their followers and explained how the dynamics of dating work.

Of course, most people want to know how their body is connected, so the twins clarified that first. They were told at four years old that they could not be separated because their bodies are too intricately connected at the torso. As a result, they share a digestive tract, a reproductive system, and a pelvis. However, they each have their own stomach and they have two separate hearts.

Carmen also reminded everyone that they have their own head, so they do not share a brain. “We don’t share a brain obviously,” she said. This adds to the fact that they feel different things. In other words, if one sister bumps her elbow, the other won’t feel a thing. “Our own sides are our own sides,” said Lupita.

Dynamics of love

When it comes to love and relationships, Lupita and Carmen are complete opposites. Lupita said that she is “asexual and romantic,” whereas Carmen admitted happily that she has a boyfriend. They have been dating for about one and a half years. Carmen explained that they met on ‘met off of Hinge’, a dating app where she found it “awkward” to communicate that she was a conjoined twin.

In the YouTube Ask Us Anything, Carmen spoke about how they had a discussion on what was acceptable or not. they set some boundaries which they have both agreed upon. “I was obviously going to be transparent about everything,” Carmen said. “It was a learning process for everybody. We obviously had to have a discussion on what boundaries are OK and what aren’t.”

Regardless of the topic of love and boundaries, Carmen has suggested they are not physically active. Although it seems that her boyfriend does not mind. “We’re not intimate in that way, and he’s OK with that,” she said. Meanwhile, Lupita puts all her effort into being a typical sister. According to Carmen, she cannot take a nice photo with her boyfriend without Lupita “ruining”. When asked what her thoughts on marriage were, Carmen said, “Whoever I’m currently dating, or in the future might be dating, I’d prefer to be life partners than actual marriage,” she said.
